Clemson freshman DT Josh Belk will transfer.

Belk (6'3/325) signed on with the Tigers during the early December window. Coming out of high school, he was viewed by Rivals as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect in the state of South Carolina for the 2018 cycle. He takes the (very) early exit having earlier participated in Clemson's spring practice. While Belk has yet to play a game at the college level, NCAA regulations are going to force him to sit out the upcoming season should he transfer within the FBS. He could apply for an immediate-eligibility waiver from the governing body once he arrives at his new program, but that's not something we would bank on to be successful. South Carolina -- who pushed hard for his pledge before Belk opted in with Clemson -- is probably the program to watch now that big defensive tackle is back on the free agent market.

UCLA freshman ATH Bryan Addison has been granted a release from his scholarship.

Addison (6'4/176) is now back out on the open market after initially signing with the Bruins this past December as a four-star recruit. Explained the versatile athlete, "I had some issues with the college board and UCLA admissions. I have been fighting this for 5-6 weeks and things were a little slow to get going and time was running out for me." He said that, understandably, it had become stressful to watch his fellow freshman class enroll without him. ASU, Oregon, USC, Nebraska and Washington are all programs which could now stand to benefit from the former four-star athlete's newfound freedom of movement. Not only that, but because he never technically enrolled at UCLA, he'll be eligible to play immediately with his program-to-be after he's settled on a new home. He hopes to make a decision within the next week or so. Addison ranked as Rivals' No. 51 overall prospect in the 2018 class, meaning there's still considerable talent to be tapped, here.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said that he expects the NCAA to eventually require teams to release injury reports.

"I think that is critically important and would not only include injuries but if there is disciplinary action where a player is suspended for a game for whatever reason, that would need to be a part of it as well," Swofford said. Speaking at the ACC Kickoff on Wednesday, he indicated that he does not expect the requirement of injury reports to be implemented prior to the 2019 season. The impetus for the potential change came about when the Supreme Court lifted the federal ban on gambling earlier this year. Swofford noted that coaches in his conference are in a general agreement that injury reports are going to be necessary in the near future given the state of the landscape.

FAU HC Lane Kiffin spoke out in opposition to North Carolina HC Larry Fedora's Wednesday skepticism regarding the connection between CTE and concussions.

"What's the most important thing? Long-term health, or how the game looks?" Kiffin asked rhetorically on Thursday. He later added that he believes that safety changes being implemented in the game -- which he supports -- will ultimately help the sport and help to keep people involved with the sport. Fedora made major waves on Wednesday when he voiced doubts over the scientific connection between CTE and concussions, saying that football was "under attack." Dino Babers and Will Muschamp are among those (along with Kiffin) who have spoken out in refutation of Fedora's stance over the past 24-plus hours.

Alabama redshirt senior LB Keith Holcombe has quit football in order to focus on baseball.

"He's always wanted to play baseball. He's had an opportunity to play baseball, and we decided to give him the opportunity to go full-time in baseball this year," Tide HC Nick Saban said, explaining that Holcombe had the option to potentially give it a go as a two-sport athlete, but that the redshirt senior declined on the football side. So baseball it is, now. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder was an active performer for the defending champs last season, recording 38 tackles, but Saban and his staff have been anticipating his departure for some time, as Holcombe did not take part in spring practice. His loss thins an already thin depth chart at inside linebacker. The team should be OK for now, but if Dylan Moses or Mack Wilson were to suffer injury upcoming, the lack of depth might start to become problematic.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that senior WR Will Hastings' recovery from a torn ACL sustained in the spring is "going excellent."

"He's off to a very good start," Malzahn said. Hastings (5'10/167) initially tore his ACL during spring practices. Even at the beginning of May, Malzahn was expressing hope that the wideout would be ready to return to play before the end of the upcoming campaign. No setbacks have occurred since to dash that hope, it would appear. Just when -- specifically -- Hastings might be healthy enough to see the field remains unknown, but this picture should begin to clarify in the coming weeks. Working out of the slot last season, he registered a 26-525-4 receiving line.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Clemson DC Brent Venables has received a five-year contract extension.

Per ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Venables' extension will be worth $11.6 million in total. The 47-year-old coordinator is going to draw $2 million for his annual base salary -- he'll be the highest paid assistant in the country -- with retention bonuses kicking in each year for the duration. Venables is often floated as a potential candidate for head-coaching jobs when the carousel picks up its spin in late autumn, but seems incredibly comfortable with his position on staff at Clemson and may well just be one of those coaches who has no urge to continue to climb the ladder.

North Carolina AD Bubba Cunningham said that the program self-reported several violations to the NCAA relating to players selling shoes.

"There were a number of students [who sold shoes]," Cunningham said during an ACC media event on Thursday. He added those those players -- none of whom were named -- could potentially face some sort of a suspension. While NCAA infractions are never welcomed, it could be worse. This is considered a "secondary violation," which does not carry the sort of steep penalty we've seen levied in the past. If any suspensions do develop from this case, we'll pass along word.

USC sophomore WR Joseph Lewis was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence on Wednesday night.

TMZ Sports initially broke the news of Lewis' arrest, with that report subsequently confirmed by USA Today through the LAPD. At this juncture, little information is available beyond the basic fact that the sophomore wideout was arrested at 11:00 PM on Wednesday following an alleged altercation with a woman. The timing is about as bad as can be imagined -- it comes just over a week after Lewis was released from jail after serving 21 days as part of a plea deal reached after he was arrested in February on a pair of domestic battery charges. Lewis was hopeful to be able to rejoin the Trojans for August camp, but that's almost certainly not going to happen, now. It's very possible USC moves to dismiss him altogether, though that has not yet occurred.

Missouri dismissed indefinitely suspended redshirt senior S Kaleb Prewett.

Prewett (6'1/210) has been on the bad side of HC Barry Odom since January, when the team initially moved to issue an indefinite suspension against the redshirt senior. A little over half-a-year later, the former Kansas State Wildcat has been booted altogether. We still don't know what, exactly, Prewett did to earn the ultimate dismissal, as the only reason given for his initial suspension was a boilerplate "violation of team rules." Regardless, the end result, here, is that Missouri is letting go a versatile starting defender, one who handled both strongside linebacking and safety duties at times last year.

Boise State junior RB Alexander Mattison (leg) has been participating in offseason workouts and expects to be a full participant in August camp.

Mattison (6'0/200) initially injured his lower left leg during the fourth quarter of Boise State's Mountain West title-game showdown with Fresno State this past autumn. He underwent offseason surgery to repair the health concern and subsequently sat out contact work during spring practice while continuing his rehabilitation. The junior back resumed participating in workouts in June, though it should be noted that he did have a slight setback earlier this summer, one which required another (more minor) procedure on the leg. Mattison has enough wear and tear on him that it's worth monitoring how cleanly he's able to make it through camp. This past season, he rushed for 1,086 yards and 12 touchdowns, with much of that production coming in the second half of the campaign, after he had gotten his feet under him. He was named to the Doak Walker preseason watch list earlier this week.

Virginia Tech HC Justin Fuente said that the "door's closed" on the possibility that dismissed redshirt junior S/LB Mook Reynolds could return to the team.

Not an ounce of wiggle room coming from Fuente on this one. Reynolds was arrested a week ago Monday and subsequently hit with a felony charge of selling and distributing marijuana and/or the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute. The program moved to dismiss him immediately following that arrest -- felony charges are almost universally going to get players kicked out of school. Over the past two seasons, Reynolds has posted 134 total tackles, 18.0 of which went for loss. Devon Hunter, a sophomore, could potentially be in line to step up as starter in place of Reynolds with a strong August camp.
